The Ultimate Florida Top 100
Recruiting has changed drastically over the past few years. I like to call it the acceleration of the process. Everything now happens at warp speed, from evaluations to offers, to visits and then commitments.
Gone are the days of tracking/evaluating just the senior class through signing day.
Now it’s about tracking/evaluating everyone and that includes the current senior, junior, and sophomore classes as well as the freshman sensations that pop up.
Having said that, I came up with the idea of merging the current crop of recruits from the state of Florida. It’s basically combining three classes into one (2014, ’15 and ’16).
If so then how would a compilation of these prospects look in a Florida Top 100?
Well, let’s take a look at the first ever Ultimate Florida Top 100, consisting of the very best recruits from the Sunshine State in the classes of ’14, ’15 and ’16.
Plantation (Fla.) American Heritage standout running back Sony Michel leads the way. It’s only fitting that Michel is the top dog, as this Georgia commitment has been a high school star since he first stepped foot on campus as an 8th grader.
